All City Records and Saturn WölfflöW have teamed up to host a graffiti workshop for trans and non-binary people, and their pals. 

Happening on Sunday, June 18, opposite PantiBar on Capel St., all are welcome to attend, whether you’ve never held a spray can before or you’re already well-versed in the skill. 

No matter if you just want to spectate or have your voice heard, here you can learn about the different types of graffiti, their connection to the street world and, of course, how to paint them. 


Poster Graffiti Workshop

The workshop for trans people and their pals will begin at 12pm with an introduction to the ‘History of Graffiti’. During the event, attendees will also get the chance to design a mural for Trans Pride, which is happening on July 8. The mural will then be painted by the hosts of the workshop, for all to see.

And for anyone that gets hooked after holding a can in their hand, there will be a 20% discount in the shop after attending.

All City specialises in graffiti supplies and vinyl records. Established in 2001, it has become Ireland’s exclusive distributor of high-quality spray paint. In 2003, it became a record label that, since then, has consistently grown to encompass several sub-labels.

After Twitter users recently highlighted that the store’s Twitter account had engaged with tweets that targeted the trans community, the label vowed to do better in the future. This is how the workshop came to life.

Saturn says that together, the two decided “to show the community an apology for the tweets”.

Speaking from her own experience, she states that “All City have been no different to me as a customer since I transitioned, they gave Rock For Culture free paint for the protest and they’ve supported the local community forever”. 

She went on to say that issues like the ones of the previous months needed to be tackled “by opening people’s mindsets up to how the world affects others” and continued by thanking the store “for seeking the change and knowledge” about how it could do better in the future.
